Mixed Mode Characterisation of Fracture Toughness

Authors(2) :-Krishna Nair, Dr G. S. Doiphode

The applications of fracture mechanics have traditionally concentrated on crack growth problems under an opening or mode I mechanism. However, many service failures occur from growth of cracks subjected to mixed mode loadings. This paper reviews the various criteria and parameters proposed in the literature for predictions of mixed mode crack growth directions. The physical basis and limitations for each criterion are briefly reviewed.
